I know most Dead show files of shn or flac are 900+mb, but how big is an mp3 file for a whole show? Maybe 100mb would work for that?

VBR mp3 files for a whole show are around 200-250mb. Less for shorter 60's shows, more for the 73-74 mammoths.

Maybe sending a set at time, but then depending on the recipients connection, could take a while to transfer and receive and open. One day it will no doubt be a no brainer. How about when a file gets zipped? Does that compress it enough? remember all the boards used to be zip files?

Hmmm, not sure about zipping the files. I just tried to zip the vbr mp3's of 10.26.89, second set only. Before the zip the files were 139mb. Once zipped the zip file was 139mb. Although I work for a technology company, I work on the sales and marketing side so I lay no claim to being a technologist. ;-) Maybe someone else can help here.

It would have to be 1 file at a time
for example. I sent China > Rider to a friend, I had to do 2 seperate sendings
